Damen Shipyards Sharjah (DSS) celebrated its tenth anniversary on Friday.
Starting out in 2012 on undeveloped ground near Dubai, DSS has grown into a state-of-the-art shipyard covering 200,000m2. It features large construction halls and eleven repair berths, including one covered berth.
Over the last decade, the shipyard has developed a strong track record, delivering 90 new vessels. Amongst these, is the largest newbuilt vessel constructed in the UAE; a project DSS managed to safely undertake during the coronavirus pandemic.
Additionally, the yard has undertaken over 3,000 repair projects including more than 1,000 dockings, 2,000 quayside repairs and ten major conversions.
DSS in a statement underlined its “efficient service with a focus on both quality and safety” – at the right price. With a well-established, audited HSEQ regime, the yard is very proud of its excellent safety results.
DSS said “The yard boasts a highly skilled team of engineers available 24/7. With all major trades in house, DSS serves its clients as a one-stop-shop able to carry out 90% of its work with its own personnel”.
